Editorial Reviews

With Chicago blues legends Billy Boy Arnold, John Primer, Billy Branch, Lurrie Bell and Carlos Johnson leading the way, Chicago Blues: A Living History debuted with a Grammy nod, two Blues Music Award nominations and multiple international awards. Their self-titled 2009 release was hailed as the greatest tribute of our time to Chicago blues and their next one is set to outdo it.

The (R)evolution Continues is the largest-ever gathering of Chicago blues greats for one studio recording, with guest appearances by Buddy Guy,
James Cotton, Magic Slim, Ronnie Baker Brooks and Zora Young. The music on this two-disc set stirs the soul with songs from the 40s to the 90s. These are commanding performances by the bluesmen who played with the city's towering icons, musicians who form the bridge between the genre s pioneers and today's interpretation of Chicago blues. The original and evolving sound of Chicago blues is alive and thriving in Chicago Blues: A Living History, and these new recordings are certified proof.
This double CD comes in a stunning, deluxe 8-panel, full-color digipack with an accompanying 36-page full-color booklet filled with historical information as well as photos from renowned Chicago Blues photographer Raeburn Flerlage.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing January 31, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I found this to be a disappointing collection of lifeless, rote covers. Wish I could say better, but I can't.

If you like Chicago Blues you will love this double cd. This cd is current Chicago Blues Masters doing the the blues of the blues master of an earlier time. I would suggest getting the first cd and this 4 cd's of great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chicago Blues at its best March 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Hard to find something better about Chicago Blues nowadays. The Skoller brothers, producers of this CD, did a great job: even artists whose class and talent are not reknown worldwide sound terribly good. Out of 32 tracks, only 4/5 are blues standards. Nice packaging too with a booklet containing information and photos.
